A most important aspect of living happily is to define what's truly important in life. I believe we get in trouble when happiness is defined by 'stuff or worse yet 'more stuff''.

For example, do I really need a bigger trailer to acheive happiness on the road? or is it being on the road in any trailer with my freind?

Most of the time it's simply finding joy in each other, not in what surrounds us. I maintain, that for most of us, our lives started with small and simple amounts of stuff.. proabaly the happiest times of our lives.

There is a beauty in simplicity, the true essence of a fiberglass trailer, the chance to easily travel about exploring our world and each other.

Blessed are those not encumbered by 'stuff', where pleasure resides in a smile, touch, a passing kiss, a shared moment.

Steve most everyone appreciates tenderness. I bet your wife gives you a light kiss on the back of your neck as your laying the tile, making it all worth while. By the way, RVers seem to have a lighter side, it's probably the small beds that encourage it, hard to avoid contact (if there's anyone that want's to avoid it) you know...LOL

or learn to understand the brownie point system that women live by that is very different from what most men assume it to be. Reading Men are From Mars and Women Are From Venus might help you out on that front.

Brownie points???? I do like brownies...actually I agree that in relationships there is the collection of chits to absolve one from mistakes. Over the years I think chits sort of disappear from the relationship, hopefully your partner loves what you are and embraces it.

I find that over the years I've changed a bit falling more in line with Virginia and her with me, sometimes I think a melding into one. This is not to say that we don't have own individual characteristics. She is more timid; I'm more of a risk taker. However we now recognize each other's characteristics more deeply and we (particularly me, Ginny was always accepting) are more accepting.

Wives have some very "interesting" ways to get us to do things. For example, Grace fractured a vertebra just to get me to cook and clean the toilet. How sneaky is that?

Secrets

So much of life is a secret, even within families. Unfortunately secrets discourage the spread of information. For most of us, life experience, unlike formulas and facts, seems to be more difficult to acquire other than by living it.

My DH has a word for that Greek word....it is I'm thinking of the Best Way to do it....Why he only thought about how to rebuild the kitchen for 10 years.....Ok all jokes aside I although he did plan and save for that long I now have a Very Beauthful Kitchen hand built and designed by my wonder husband

One woman's point of view... When younger I begrudged that my husband rarely said "I love you" or brought be flowers or gave me a mushy birthday/anniversary card. In time I realized that my DH shows his love for me through the projects he does ranging from acting as contractor for the remodeling of our home ( a 4 year project!), making beautiful furniture and cooking gourmet meals each night to fixing the toilet when it's backed up. It seems all he wants in return is appreciation for him and his good deeds (I'd say this is a pretty good deal for me). We are now going on 40 years of marriage plus a 4 year courtship. We love each other now in a more comfortable and accepting way than ever before. This is a good thing because we are now both retired and spend most of our time together, happily. I agree with Carol, read the book "Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus". A new book, while meant for female readers, can be useful for both genders; "Think Like a Man, Act Like a Woman" by Steve Harvey. Misunderstandings between men and women have gone on since the beginning of time providing a lifetime opportunity to learn and accommodate one another. Love and appreciate your life partner and remember, don't sweat the small stuff!

Lest anyone get the wrong idea I'm just having some good natured fun at the expense of of my sweetie, Cheri. We have a great relationship. She tells me what to do and I do it, LOL.

Seriously if I read one of those books I might get some insight into solving those creatures known as women. That would be like flying to my destination instead of taking my camper. You'd miss all the adventures along the way!

In JAMAICA folks say, "Soon come." This means anything from a few minutes to maybe never.

"In JAMAICA folks say, "Soon come." This means anything from a few minutes to maybe never."

My brother in law manages a software company whose products make city, county, state, and federal governments work. He and his team showed up in the islands prepared to train the civil service employees how to use the products. 8 am appts became 10:30 am free for all's. A very rude awakening to "island time". To top it off this same entity became the#1 problem child to their complaints dept. They didn't know how to make anything work! Hmmmmm wonder why?
